In Darkness

This song is by Contravene and appears on the album A Call To Action (2002).

The sun rises once again
Swallow the night has come to end
Lay down your weapons, lie down my friends
For the night will soon be here again.
And the bright light screams across the sky
And I am forced to face what I despise
A land torn apart by greed
Their lust for money, their power, we feed
And millions search the ground for scraps
In this system we fall between the cracks
Rise up together, rise up as one
Dismantle their system
We've only begun
And as the night falls
The darkness is setting in
Lay down your weapons, lie down my friends
In the darkness is when we make our choice
In the darkness is when we raise our voice
'Cause we can live like slaves in this capitalist society
Or raise our voice and let our actions show just what we can be
A real functioning community with a real fucking purpose
Without all the greed
We can make this shit happen but it's going to take more than just you and me.
We have to reach out and establish a real resistance
And the words alone are not enough
Our actions have to be persistent
We can't ever let up or even show a weakness
Because if we do they're surely going to beat us
Rise up, raise up your voice
We have to work together and we have to make a choice
Another 500 years of oppression and hate
Or start to rebuild before it's too late
Raise up your voice
Don't take their shit
Solidarity is a weapon
Let's start using it
Raise up your weapons, stand up and fight
Join the resistance for all that is right
Raise up your weapons, rise up my friends
See hate and injustice come to an end.
